Your bird houses Look very nice.
A question do birds go inside or are they just attractive?

P.S. I just went back through your projects and i guess the houses are for small birds to occupy
There is one which has 30+ rooms do you really get a occupation for so many?
The shop face lift is really nicely done. I hope the business takes off (pun) !!

Hey I just noticed some white stuff on the ground !! its 30+ deg C here at the moment !! I wonder just what it could be !!

Enjoy Christmas.

Nice builds, great bird houses. I heard on the news that there was a pick up in the housing market, this confirms that.

Really great bird houses. What kind of birds are they built for ? What size hole do you use ?

I always like seeing your birdhouses. I have been trying to talk the owner of our local golf course into one of these…... maybe one day. Nice work John.

John, another great batch of birdhouses!! The tenants will be very happy for sure. A while back you and I had spoken about you doing a short tutorial on how you produce the stock you use to build these. I was wondering if you ever had a chance to do that and I might have missed it? Thanks Pat
